Architect & Developer: A Guide to Self-Initiating Projects

James Petty, AIA

Architect & Developer explores an alternative path within the profession.

Project description:

The book "Architect & Developer: A Guide to Self-Initiating Projects" serves as a conduit for spreading the information gathered while studying the cross between the roles of the architect and the developer. The book includes one-on-one interviews with architects and sold over 500 copies in the first six-months.

Architects have long been charged with creating a better-built environment, but it is the developers who dictate what is actually built in our cities. By combining architect and developer, architects can command a greater sense of control, faster decision-making, an efficient process, and the potential for a much better profit.
